    Vietnam

    The extent to which households should be
    allowed to transfer their land rights in post-socialist
    transition economies is of considerable policy interest. The
    authors use data from Vietnam, a transition country that
    allows rental and sales of land use rights, to identify
    factors conducive to the development of land markets and to
    assess the extent to which land transfers enhance productive
    efficiency and transfer land to the poor. They find that

    The decollectivization of agriculture in
    Vietnam was a crucial step in the country's transition

    While liberalizing key factor markets is
    a crucial step in the transition from a socialist
    control-economy to a market economy, the process can be
    stalled by imperfect information, high transaction costs,
    and covert resistance from entrenched interests. The authors
    study land-market adjustment in the wake of Vietnam's
    reforms aiming to establish a free market in land-use rights
    following de-collectivization. Inefficiencies in the initial
